Isolation Techniques for Direct and Indirect Restorations

Isolation Techniques for Direct and Indirect Restorations

Sep 30, 2021



Isolation methods and moisture control could make or break the placement of a posterior restoration. Without proper moisture control, the adhesion of the composite could be greatly compromised and lead to a marginal breakdown, microleakage, recurrent decay, and ultimately a complete failure of the restoration. This course will explain the various types of moisture control and isolation methods for placing posterior restorations to ensure long-term success.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the various systems available for proper isolation and moisture control specifically when placing posterior restorations.
  • Review “tips and tricks” of the systems and methods of placing isolation as well as posterior restorations.
  • Be able to determine what methods work best in their specific practices.
